Here’s a catch-up post on Vivre opening her first ever retail store. The thoughts of opening a store had been put aside time and time again to minimize the risks we had to take. And this year early March 2015, we happened to spot a space that seems to be suitable, and thought that it might be about time we give it a go! Yup, it was a really fast decision and I’m now typing away in a store so comfy and cozy.
Here’s some pictures to share in case it missed it at my dayre (sylviaaajiaa) or Vivre’s instagram!
How the shop looks like the very first time we chance upon it. Pretty run down from the ceiling, walls, to floor..! Had zero clue about where to start, but our main concern was to keep cost low. So, yup, decided on basic paint work and keep the rest of the decor that was available.
My love for everything blue~ It makes me feel like I’m floating in the sky, ocean etc. so its quite refreshing!
And we decided to spend a little on the flooring. Lush green grass – super love! Bonus that we won’t have to mop the floor anymore, just vacuum! ;)
And within a week, our store was ready! Soft launched it for business but we still can’t decide if a grand opening is necessary. It’s a tiny space of 100 sq ft, no idea how to accommodate guests! So yup, please do drop by whenever you like even if we did not organize an official opening! We are really a no-frills kinda brand. :)
Thank you lovely family and friends for the lovely flowers although the security isn’t a fan of these. And yup, you can find beautiful handmade malas, semi-precious stones bracelets by Ohmywaves at the store too!
